Monkey Day

December 14

monkey day

Monkey Day is an informal, primarily internet-based holiday celebrated internationally on December 14. While it began as an in-joke among two Michigan State University artists, it has since spread across the world and is used as a platform to spread awareness about monkeys and other primates, their habitats, and their role in our world. Activists often use Monkey Day to focus attention on issues like deforestation, illegal pet trade, and medical research. The day typically involves primate-themed activities like art exhibitions, educational workshops, and fundraising for primate conservation projects. In some areas, zoos or wildlife parks may offer special Monkey Day programming, from guided tours focusing on primate residents to “meet the keeper” sessions.
